Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is a major new attraction in West Cornwall.
This beautiful landscaped garden in a sheltered valley overlooking Mount's Bay is a plantsmans paradise with its rare exotic and sub-tropical plants and shrubs.
Interwoven with this there is an evolving programme of high quality contemporary art installations including works by Kishio Suga and James Turrell.
Surrounded by native woodland species which provide natural shelter for the garden, the 11 acre site has its own micro-climate and is believed to have once been the property of the monks of St Michael's Mount who used it as a vineyard.
Accessed from the car parking area via a woodland path beside a stream, the visitor is surprised as they emerge from the woodland into the open expanse of the garden with its dramatic views.
Otter and Stoat frequent the stream and the gardens are a haven for wild birds and other native wildlife.
